“We don’t know nearly enough to manage the ecosystems on our own. If we think that we can eliminate those natural ecosystems and substitute prosthetic devices, like creating clean air or water with fusion energy or sustaining the stability of cropland – in fact, [if we think we can] keep the planet in the delicately balanced, highly peculiar state on which humanity depends for its continued existence – then we are kidding ourselves?.
E.O. Wilson
